  1. Here is a comparison in size between a Provincial Wagons H van, a Parkside Palvan conversion, and a Parkside 12 ton van. To my eye the palvan looks undersized. Maybe too narrow? Has a anyone got the dimensions of the CIE version?
  2. I have been busy the last few months with my first acting role with a local community theater during which time the layout was ignored. The show went very well im glad to report and now that it's done the layout is receiving attention again. Here we see a Waterfor bound goods passing Keilys Cross
  3. Goods train passing Keilys Cross.
  4. The contrast seems less noticeable on the layout. The photo shows a heating van in a consist with a Murphy Models Craven and a Silvet Fox open composite.
  5. Poached salmon is my guess!
  6. Did any of the 30 ton brake vans wear the yellow and black stripes on the duckets and the CIE roundal before being painted brown? I have found several photos from the mid sixties showing them in grey with the flying snail but none with the stripes. Also it seems that brake vans were repainted brown fairly quickly after 1970. How late could you see a grey one still in service? Thanks.
  7. I'm curious to know if the models shipped with only one coupler fitted as shown in the photos?
  8. Did many of the Super train A's have the roof panels painted black like 001 in the publicity photo?
  9. Me too. Fast service and very reasonable postage rates to the US.
  10. After the passenger train leaves Glen More the goods finished its work and heads towards Cork reaching the tunnel at Keilys Cross as the evening light starts to fade.
  11. While 142 shunts at Glen More the Cork Waterford passenger makes it's way through Grange and Keilys Cross.
  12. 142 arrives at Glen More and engages in some shunting.
  13. Thanks David. My modelling mojo ebbs and flows and has been absent for the last few months. Expect some more photos from a short operating session, the first in a while in the next few days.
